No longer can music be perceived just as a means of entertainment, a global and relentless creative energy flow has turned this art form into a whole realm itself. And just as what we have accepted as reality, music can be simple, deep, empty or complex. In his debut album for ABCD Mana is offering you a multicolored journey to all corners of his own world of intelligent, beat-based and atmospheric electronic music.
Plains is a wild and glitchy travel in vast ambient fields, where the horizon is constantly transformed by eclectic drum patterns and subtle, but tense electronic build ups. Your trusted guides throughout the whole record are deep and punchy bass lines, which are dragging along cut-up samples, free-form melodies and all other known and unknown inhabitants of Mana's world. Plains hides 50 minutes of deep travel, but is an intense sonic ride as well.
ABCD is a label by Ivan Shopov (aka Balkansky, Cooh, Drum Kid). His main idea is to release his own music and productions
from his favorite artists. A stands for Ivan's Artworks, B for his Balkansky project, C for Cooh and D for Drum Kid.
